Should i replace audi 2008 a4 thermostat along with timing belt and water pump 120,000 miles

I would - but the timing belt would be overdue at 120K if a 2.0L engine. From the service interval linked below:

"At 110K miles (175,000 km) replace timing belt (2.0L engine only). Check condition of timing belt tensioning system, dampening pulleys, and idler pulleys and replace if necessary (2.0L engine only)."

1999 A8 Audi

Every 60,000 miles. Change the timing belt, accessory serpentine belt, hydraulic timing tensioner, tensioner and idler rollers, tensioner relay arm, water pump, thermostat, and coolant. A dealer will charge you $1100 or more, and an independent European specialist probably $650-750. If you're in range of the southern tier of NY, I can do it for you (I specialize in Audi and VW). Order your parts online and I'll do the work for $250 in labor.

If im getting the radiator leak fixed on audi a4 is it worth getting the timing belt done at the same time if needed?

If the radiator is being replaced, yes, it may be a good idea to do the timing belt and water pump as well as the thermostat at the same time. If your car is in the area of 80K miles, yes, for sure.

Once the radiator is removed it is much easier to do the timing belt so this will save you some labor costs.

Where is the thermostat?

1993 Audi 90 2.8L SFI 6cyl - Thermostat: is located on the front of the motor under the timing cover, behind the timing belt. Usually this is replaced along with the timing belt job and the water pump.

If you follow the radiator hose up from the radiator on the right side it's up where it goes into/behind the cover.

I hope helps with this (remember arted this help) Good luck.

I want to change my thermostat in my audi

the thermostat is located behind the timing belt so you should think about changing the timing belt, water pump, and thermostat. ---- Thermostat is on the back of the cyl head up at the bulkhead, follow top rad hose back and you will find thermostat housing. If you have to ask, you probably shouldn't be attempting it. It involves a lift, draining the coolant, removing the front bumper, putting the core support into the service position, removing the belts, moving the alternator, loosening the mounting plate that supports the fan clutch, power steering pump etc. - all so you can get to the thermostat housing! If you had a Jaguar, changing a thermostat would take less than fifteen minutes. Instead, the Germans audi car made it a four hour job for a professional too.

Where is the thermostat on a v6 audi engine?

It is behind the timing belt area on the right front corner of the motor..You will need to remove the timing belt to get it out (well sometimes you can flex it enough to get the t-stat out) and so you may as well replace the belt while you are in there..

Where is the thermostat located on 1998 audi a6 2.8L engine

The thermostat is located on the pass side of the engine.  There are timing belt covers that need to be removed.  In order to remove the thermostat normally the front bumper has to come off and the car has to be put into what audi calls service mode. This allows room to get to the timing belt components.

Thermostat jammed, car overheating

Probably right between the two banks of cylinders, at the front of the V behind the top of the timing case. Not worked on this engine in particular but thats where they usually are on V6's.

Audi timing belt

It's a complicated job, and usually takes about 8 hours to do the full service if you're familiar with the car's mechanicals, you have a good array of tools (air tools help a lot), you're familiar with what you're doing, and with how to disassemble everything (including removing the front of the car - I'm not joking). There's more to the job than just the belt too - you need to replace the timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, serpentine belt, and serpentine tensioner. If your cam seals are leaking (which is also known to happen), you'd need those and plan for a couple more hours as well, due to the care that must be taken not to scratch or score the cam end caps.
